  3. Australian Uni Games: Day Two Report

It was a hot and humid day yesterday for our athletes, but day two provided many highlights for Sydney University.

Competing in 59 games throughout the day, Sydney Uni continued to show dominance across the board winning 40 of these matches.

Several teams continued their winning streaks remaining undefeated in the competition, with the highlight being the Women’s Rugby 7’s team who qualified for the grand final and won.

The team proved unstoppable, beating Charles Sturt University in the semi-final 60 -0 before taking on James Cook University in the grand final and winning strongly 44 – 7.  

With such a talented team, three girls from Sydney Uni were named in the Green and Gold side, this included Elite Athlete Program scholarship holder Emily Chancellor, Illi Batibasaga and Sarah Halvorson.

The Men’s Rugby 7’s team look set to follow in the Women’s footsteps, with another two impressive wins yesterday against Griffith University and Monash University.

Our swimming team have also provided some exciting results in the first days of competition with several athletes medalling in their finals. Kerian Qaium won the 100 metre Butterfly, while Keelen Bridge came first in the 4×100 Medley Relay and placed third with a personal best swim in the 50 metre Backstroke.

Other teams looking strong to medal include the Men’s and Women’s Water Polo, Women’s Hockey and Women’s Basketball.
